    NOX NOX NOXing on heavens door in the ozone




    You can start by action.

    Therefore by releasing access to repair information and emission update flash DVD's soon to come out for sale to all repair shops for a reasonable fee.

    All procedures of the car for any repair information to any produced car to be in printed form, or text in PDF; that was prior migrated to the SVM or VAS diagnostic tester.

    All charts for codification for each controller, and an explanation as in the past when it was in print when coding was first introduced.

    All security access codes in order to configure a controller, and the main SKC, or Component Protection data, made available to the owner of respective vehicle upon sale, or request with proper credentials.


    If I ever saw a good reason to not trust the manufacturer for fair release of information to repair a vehicle ......this is one of them.

    This should be added to the RTRA!

    What you think Axel?

    Jack,

    well said and I couldn't agree with you more. Unfortunately, most manufacturers have already taken advantage of the complexity of the software to severely restrict the owner's ability to monitor and understand what is going on in his/her car. German manufacturers, especially BMW, are notorious for this, but the Japanese ones are not far behind.

    Speaking for myself, for over ten years now the availability of VCDS is one of the reasons, if not the primary one, that I continue to buy VW-group vehicles, but even VCDS has restrictions imposed by the manufacturer, as you point out. Perhaps the silver lining in this whole debacle might be a legal mandate to open up the software architecture to the owners and independent repair shops. Ironic, isn't it, that the same Herr Dr. Prof. Ing. Winterkorn that is now demanding our confidence was the first not to trust us to have the expertise to understand what is going on with our cars' subsystems.

    Well, now that Winterkorn is gone, hopefully the whole F1/Red Bull plan will be put on hold, or better still dropped. I believe it was Winterkorn's idea and I don't think it was a good one. Better focus on the product and, at least in North America, the dealers, imo.
